Maybe something like ffmpeg-qa. When I get FATE to send emails, this 
could be the destination.

Databases are my hammer. Every problem looks like a nail. :)

Overkill, true. But this is my general problem-solving approach: just 
throw out *some* solution, usually the dumbest/most naive solution 
possible (this is pretty much how FATE came to exist). Since there's 
nowhere to go but up, people start proposing more rational solutions. 
(You'll see a lot of this on my blog. :) )

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll see what I can come up with.
